Let’s Cook Together with
Chefs Sanjay & Sunita

Get set to learn about Indian cuisine in the best way possible at these cooking classes with Daana’s chef Sanjay, awarded ACT Chef of the Year 2020 by the Restaurant & Catering Association of Australia and chef Sunita ACT Businesswoman of the Year by Canberra Women in Business.

Join chefs Sanjay and Sunita at Daana once a month to kindle your love for Indian cuisine- one of the great world cuisines with diverse ethnic subcultures and an endless repertoire of excitingly delicious curries and dishes.

In these classes, you’ll learn about spices – their fundamental qualities and how to extract their optimal flavour. The Chef duo will guide you in preparing the dishes and some accompaniments to round out your meal.

With event size limited to 16 (8 cooking workstations of 2 persons), you will enjoy learning and interacting with the chef and others in this unique cooking experience.

The classes will be on Saturday mornings from 11.00 am until 1.30 pm.

We will cook in pairs in the class, and we recommend booking in groups of two. However, if you have an individual booking, we will pair you with a similar booking for the class.

“I attended one of Daana’s cooking classes on the weekend. I purchased a ticket for myself and a friend for her birthday. We had such a wonderful time and felt completely supported throughout the class by Sanjay and Sunita, who were both incredibly knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. The dish we cooked was delicious (despite both thinking we’re terrible cooks) and overall it was a fabulous day out. We’re already talking about when we will come back for another class!”
